IKEA wireless charging Qi

Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus arrived in stores last week. One of the highlights of the new design is a glass back with support for Qi wireless charging. While IKEA has offered home furnishings with built-in charging pads since 2015, the company launched an advertising campaign to promote its Qi offerings to Apple fans.

Super Mario Run getting first major update with a new world

Daisy Super Mario Run

When Super Mario Run was released at the premium price of $9.99 for the full version, iOS fans were concerned that Nintendo would not add any new content. While there have been a few minor updates that have added different color Yoshis and other minor details, there hasn't been a major update that has added new levels or worlds since the game's initial release.

This is about the change as Nintendo announced this week it its planning a major update on September 29th. The update will bring a new level, world, unlockable character and more. Here's what we know so far:

Pre-order your iPhone X case before the October launch

iPhone X Cases

The iPhone X is slightly larger than the iPhone 7. Its height is listed at 5.65 inches (143.6 mm), compared to the iPhone 7 which is listed at 5.45 inches (138.4 mm). The iPhone X is smaller than the Plus models which are around 6.24 inches (158.4 mm). This means your current iPhone case will not fit the iPhone X no matter what device you own. Even though the iPhone X is around the same size as the iPhone 7, it has a larger 5.8-inch Super Retina HD display thanks to its bezel-less design. This is something you will need to keep in mind when shopping for a new screen protector, or you can just pre-order the new Zagg invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone X and save yourself some time.

4 wireless chargers for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X

AirPower

You will need to purchase a wireless charging pad or dock if you plan to take advantage of the new wireless charging feature found on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X. Apple plans to release its own charging mat called the AirPower, but it won't be available until next year. Until then Apple has suggested iPhone owners use third-party chargers from Belkin or Mophie, but any Qi-compliant device will work. You can see a list of Qi-supported devices on the wireless power consortium website.
